Description
When Stan (Lagusaya2) asked me to do this song and then I heard it, I thought 'What a cool song'!!
It's very well crafted and has a unique chord progression that builds on itself. Excellent!
Then came time to sing it....Not so easy for me with my limited range because it starts low and goes high.
Anyway I hope I did it justice and you like it, because it is such a great song!!!

Stan added some great harmony parts!!

Lyrics
© February 23, 2008 Stanley Loh
Verse 1
Your road ahead looks desolate,
My friends saw you with another date,
You must have known ‘cause you took off,
The locks been changed, I thought I ought.
Your guitar’s here, books piling up,
CDs, jackets and silver cup …
Chorus
Come take away your precious things,
And in the pile, our wedding ring.
Verse 2
I’ll fly alone through the sky,
I will hold my head up high,
After the pain you put me through,
A better life is overdue.
It’s not too late for me to try,
I’ll never let you see me cry…
Chorus
Come take away your precious things,
And in the pile, our wedding ring.

Bridge
So spare me … take away your stupid things,
I’m not missing anything,
I’ll be alright,
I have wings …
I’ll fly away to new highs.
Verse 3
I’m pinning a note about your things,
In seven days I’ll be ordering,
A moving truck to the dump,
All your stuff in one lump,
I’ll have the strength to fight the blues,
I won’t be crying out for you…
Chorus
Come take away your precious things,
And in the pile, our wedding ring.
Bridge
So spare me … take away your stupid things,
I’m not missing anything,
I’ll be alright,
I have wings …
I’ll fly away to new highs…
I’ll fly away to new highs....

YOUR PRECIOUS THINGS WITH STAN LOH
All those palm muted electric guitars are awesome! That throbbing bass tone is also wonderful. Bill Wyman did this session.....am I right? Your vocal sounds great. The mix and production are outstanding. Ummmm.....download of course!

Stan does write cool songs! The muted guitar fit just perfect. Outlaw alt country is a good description of this song.

Awesome
Sad lyrics, but what a great team! I have been a fan of Stan's writing for so long. And, you did the song justice, no worries there, your voice sounds fine. Fits the melancholy feel of the song perfectly. Terrific work guys!

YOUR PRECIOUS THINGS
Well structured with nice changes, I like the rise to the chorus. Vocals have a ton of personality. Chugging guitars are reminiscent of the Willburys & Petty.

Way cool!
The vibe is way cool. The minimalism here supports the track.
Great job on the bass line. Someone said, Wyman, maybe Nashville mid 70s? Thanks for sharing this great track with us...

Vocals and guitars are very well recorded. The drum is a bit hard to find....

Oof...
Very well-written, well performed piece of sadness and story of moving on. Great job on the guitars, and in a way, pushing your voice into new highs and lows caused a bit of wobble that could be construed as emotion, so it fit well. :-)
ttfn,
Drakonis

You have such a distinctive voice, jibes. driven by that guitar strumming that keeps things chugging along thru the tune. is that you on harmonica?
